About Me


The time has come to say goodbye to Swap-bot for awhile. 2019 promises to be the beginning of change for me. Time to uproot, spread my wings and find another, perhaps my last BIG adventure. The gypsy in me yearns to hit the road before it's too late...so I must wander...follow where my heart dictates and persue my dreams. Which means surrendering my home in the mountains, to do what, I'm not too sure yet. What I do know is I have faith that as I move forward, the journey will unfold, and it will all work out the way it should.

So for now, I wish you all a fabulous new year. Make it the best one yet, leave your mark, stand for something you believe in and most important, follow your dreams.

A big thank you for all the fabulous swaps I've been privileged to be a part of and all the wonderful swap partners I've had the pleasure of meeting. Until we meet again, keep your face turned towards the sunshine, and you'll not fear the shadows...I'll be seeing ya', peace.


Favorite Crafts

I have diverse interests...Art Journaling, making art dolls, altered art, Zentangles, furniture painting, sewing, crochet and the list goes on. Dotee dolls, pincushions and just about anything else. .
THESE ARE A FEW OF MY FAVORITE THINGS. I would really like to receive any of the following... Thank You in advance.

Stickers, and sticker flakes, just no teacher reward

Die cuts of nature, birds, flowers, vines, anything but kiddie stuff.

Anything steam punk

Pretty paper napkins, Please no kiddie nappies.

Project Life cards.

Punches you no longer use, but are still usable. I have exactly 3.

Washi tape and deco tape, love it!

Die cut templates, used, for the original sizzix manual die cut machine.

Self adhesive pearls & gems for making embellishments.

Micron pens for zentanles.

Double sided papers, at least 6 x 6".

Glitter paper.

Address labels with cool designs.

Cool paperclips, flags, & stickies.

POSTCARDS! I love postcards

STAMPS:, used, old, whatever, old coins from other countries.

Bits and Bobs for making junk journals and for making my planner cool.

EPHEMERA: the real deal or reproductions, I enjoy vintage and shabby chic, eclectic items.

Old art from books that are not in great shape anymore...Unusable but brightly colored, and patterned childrens' book pages, the larger the better to make envies out of. OR...just a couple really beautiful pages.

Old photos, Old posters, old maps, book pages in foreign languages, note cards old and new, and valentines. Stationery sets.

Any kind of food, baking/cooking stickers, cut outs etc. for my scrap/recipe book.

Things I like from nature: Butterflies, dragonflies, ladybugs, Otters are one of my favs. Also Big cats, i.e. lions and tigers, panthers, etc. I love dragons, although they are mythical. I also have a love of wolves and large breed dogs such as Irish Wolfhounds, Great Danes, Dobermans, etc. I have an appreciation for all animals.

I collect tarot cards, singles, multiples and old decks that don't call to you anymore. I love the unusual and unique artwork. Some are extremely beautiful. I'm attempting to accumulate 78 different cards for a personal deck.

I'm also into natural remedies, herb crafting, wild food foraging, etc. Anything related to these topics, and if you have a dried herb to share along with notes on how to use, etc..

I collect small wind up toys of any type. They're not expensive, usually a couple bucks. Tea cups and saucers, fairies and gnomes, and oh, if you find a smooth flat rock in your yard or on your travels, I'll take it! I love to paint rocks...

Air sign. Accumulate sticks, stones, seeds, (flower and veggie) Heirloom and non-gmo. wildcrafter, wicca, nature lover, studying herbalism. Against violence, prejudice, cruelty, and hatefulness. Believe that your religion is your business and between you and your God, and so is mine. Believe all paths lead to god. Love candles, incense, feathers, shells, and stones.

Guess that's it for now...phew.

Other Favorites

Like my crafting interests, my musical, literary and movie choices are vast and varied. In books everything from Koontz, King, Stirling ) Patterson too, Evanovich (she makes me giggle out loud). I am an avid reader and author's are too many to mention.

MUSIC: OK, some classical, and new age. ROCK N ROLL!!! Stones, Doors, AC/DC, Iron Butterfly, Free/Bad Company, Janice Joplin (have ALL her music). Fleetwood Mac, Moody Blues, Joanie Mitchell...Almost any music except thrash and hard core rap.

MOVIES: Action and adventure, good comedies, and movies that make me think and/or make me cry. Some all time favorites: Practical Magic, Nanny Macphee, Hocus Pocus (sensing a vein here?) The War Horse, Life of Pi, and some oldies like Wuthering Heights, Jane Eyre, etc.

COLORS: Greens of all hues...kiwi, lime, emerald, seafoam, sage greens. Some deep blues, i.e: royal, ocean, cerullian. Also like rust, cinnamon...deep tones.



I HATE, abhor and despise anything with artificial sweeteners. No chemical sweetners please.
Also, I prefer not to receive religious items. No offense to anyone or their individual beliefs.

Kiddie stickers, I have no small children

1 or 2 sticky notes

Paper torn from a spiral notebook

Pieces cut from an old calendar unless it's artsy, or has interesting artwork/pictures

I Don't do farm themes, ducks, chickens and fruit themes

In general, junky stuff.

I take a great pleasure in sending off my swaps...I write a note or card to everyone I send to, and I appreciate the same...

So with all of that...thanks for reading all of this clutter. .

Comment: Thank you!!! I LOVE the necklace, card and feathers. I really love the orange, brown and white one. Do you know what bird that came from?
Response: I'm trying to think, I think it was a red hawk, but harvested naturally, during molting. Blessed Yule to you and yours.

Thank you MUCH for the adorable Christmas card----made me smile (the grinch and his pooch). I can surely use those gift tags, thank-you. My last name is McDivitt-Stripe but many times i sign just Stripe and when I get address labels made, the McDivitt-Stripe is so long, it wont fit...so I just apprev. it. You were wondering...McDivitt is my maiden name and I added Stripe when I married. Here is looking forward to a White Christmas!
Merry Christmas and Happy New year.

Thank you so much for the RAK package of goodies. It took me a couple minutes to acknowledge because I'm so busy going through it. Hee hee. It's wonderful and I truly appreciate it. Of course, I was happy to help with the swap. I'm glad it all worked out! Yay!
